* MageMarksman: The video game pretty much has this trope as its basis. Alicia has a magical gun that looks like a broomstick, can morph into either sniper rifle, shotgun or gatling gun, and its ammo is reloaded with magic. Not to mention her deadly mass-destruction spells when things get really hairy.

The game was notable for allowing the player to summon various powerful spells, including [[InstantThunder lightning strikes]], [[BlowYouAway powerful tornadoes]] and [[ColonyDrop meteor showers]]. The player's weapon could also [[MorphWeapon transform into]] [[SwissArmyWeapon four different types of guns]]. It received mixed reviews upon its release.

Taking place in a CrapsackWorld, you play as [[HotWitch Alicia]] [[BlackMagicianGirl Claus]] as she kills demons and... [[ExcusePlot well, that's pretty much it]]. There was something about some guy who killed himself and summoned the demons, but let's face it: [[PlayTheGameSkipTheStory no one really cared about that]]. But if you must know, the story takes place in [[TwentyMinutesIntoTheFuture 2013]], with humanity on the very of verge of extinction thanks to all hell breaking loose. The demons formed their own army called "the Geist" and continue to slaughter humans by the thousands. Alicia enters some unnamed part of the eastern United States coastline to fight off the demons taking over a city, despite [[HearingVoices the disembodied voice]] of the Darkness telling her that place was already doomed.

Also, [[MorphWeapon your gun could transform into]] [[SwissArmyWeapon various different weapons]]. The game fared poorly in markets with middling reception from critics. Problems included [[ArtificialStupidity awful A.I.]], bad English voice-overs, and bad level design, but the fast action and ultra spells got praise.
